Overstock seeks Java savvy employees

Overstock.com president Johnathan Johnson is in need of some Java for his Provo development office, sans the caffeine. Approximately 50 jobs are currently open in Provo for experts in the Java programming language. So far they have filled eight positions. Java is a sophisticated computer language that Johnson said will help with new online applications in development. "We are working on new finer applications to help make our business better. Our projects are pretty cutting edge," he said.

Overstock.com opened its fifth Utah office in Provo on Feb. 24, and is considered an employee-centric company. It was recently named in Forbes Magazine employee survey the No. 1 retailer to work for. Overstock.com was also ranked ninth out of the top 100 best places to work. Daily Herald
